Season 31, Episode 15 Outlawed in Pakistan

First Aired: May 28, 2013

Pakistan's justice system and cultural taboos are examined through the story of a teenage girl who accuses four men of gang-raping her and then takes her case to court.

The documentary, which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, also details the response of the accused men: a public campaign that brands her a liar.
